The Clinic relies on volunteers and community support to serve those without insurance. Experience at FHPC means creating a perfect match, both for the clinic and you. To achieve this, we meet with you individually, to explain the mission of our Clinic and to discover your interests and talents. We then match what we learn about you with our needs, and we introduce you to the staff and other volunteers and answer your questions.
You will fill out a short volunteer application, tour the facility and we both then decide if it is a good match. Happy volunteers are those that feel their talents are being utilized, appreciated and their non-profit is making a sizable difference in their community. We set a standard to perform all three.
All others interested in general volunteer positions, please contact Kathy Rauch, Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 779.220.9318, Thank you!
Volunteer Samantha’s Story
Samantha Szum is a recent NIU graduate with an Illustration Degree. She came to volunteer at the clinic after her mom, Julie a nurse at the clinic, referred her. During her job search, Samantha had some free time and it was perfect fit when she was asked to design a logo for our clinic values! “I asked for a description of the vision, then I let it seep in my head, kept it in my prayers and as soon as I started getting ideas, I grabbed the nearest paper and pen. I gave the Clinic a few design choices, then I finalized the sketches they chose and edited it to their hearts content! It feels great to leave my mark on a local nonprofit, and to help such a good cause is my pleasure!”
“I love the friendly and dedicated staff” -Sherry, Volunteer
“I enjoy the work and the people I work with” -Pat, Volunteer
“Interning at the Clinic has not only helped me professionally, but it has helped me understand what it takes to be a successful nonprofit organization. I am so grateful for the opportunities I have been given and the friendships I have made!” – Denise, Social Media & Marketing Intern
